CNN's Lou Dobbs: "Global Warming is Almost a Religion..."

Posted: 01/12/2009 - From illegal immigration and trade to voter fraud, CNN’s Lou Dobbs is never shy about expressing his opinions. That rule held true when Dobbs brought up global warming on Jan. 5.

Ferre said the Environment Protection Agency has denied it is considering a tax on livestock.
